Student Travel and Support

Welcome to the Student Travel & Support information for 2022/2023. Our aim is to provide a travel scheme that offers flexibility of choice, meets our students’ needs and does not put a barrier in the way of a student accessing their education. We work closely with both First Bus and Stagecoach bus companies to offer student-priced bus passes and to provide as many direct routes to HSDC as possible. We also work with South Western Railway to provide those students who wish to travel by train a reduced cost rail pass. Further financial help towards travel and essential college costs may be available if the household is in receipt of an income-based benefit. Please see the ‘Finance Support’ section for further information.

“HSDC provided me with the opportunity for autonomous study and the choice of subjects that I wanted to study, which helped me develop relevant knowledge as well as relevant skills for the workplace.”

Lucas Ratcliffe, A Level and CTEC student

My time at the college was definitely life changing, I have learnt a lot of new skills, and obviously it’s a completely new experience. The support was great, there was always people there to help and try make it as easy as they can for you. The college is really fantastic, it has helped me on the way to get to what I want to achieve within my career goals.
